    Just found an old book

    My parents brought a bunch of my old stuff down to me last month. I'm just now looking through the boxes and came across an old hardcover book about WDW. According to my mom's handwriting on the inside, it was a Christmas gift from 1980.

    The book is simple called "Walt Disney World" and is by Valerie Childs. It was published in 1979. It has 47 pages and it's mainly a pictorial (all color pics) of the Magic Kingdom (the only park at the time) along with some pics of the Contemporary, Polynesian, River County and the golf courses.

    For having this book in my possession for nearly 30 years, it is in near pristine condition.

    I'd scan some of the pages, but the book is a bit bigger than my scanner.

    Pretty neat find!

    You should post your pics in the yesterland forum
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: Just found an old book

    Like I said, the book is bigger than the scanner.

    But besides the book, I found an old EPCOT Center guidebook from my first visit there in 1987, a couple old EPCOT Center admission tickets from that trip ($26!) and a napkin from WDW's 15th birthday... and a couple Disneyland goodies from the 80's (an old paper bag and an Electrical Parade sticker).
